A Message from the Executive Director

I like resolutions but I think that they should be made more than once per year.  I believe in consistency and renewal.  Life isn’t easy.  Even the best laid plans can be thrown off course.  That’s why I value the Sierra Commons community.

Sierra Commons offers a consistency in a world full of ups and downs.  Sierra Commons is group of people who care about each other and who support each other.  Some of us are freelancers.  Some of us are remote workers employed by companies who let us stay in the community we love.  Some of us are just starting out, trying new ideas, establishing effective businesses that we are passionate about.  Where ever you are at in your creative and/or professional life, there is a place for you at Sierra Commons.

Maybe you’d like to take a few classes.  Maybe you’d like to teach a few classes.  Maybe you just need a nice place to work away from home.   Maybe you’ve hit a wall in your professional life and you’d like some advice. Maybe your power went out and you need reliable high-speed internet and a hot cup of coffee for the day. Sierra Commons has got you covered.

Whatever you’ve resolved to do this year, check out Sierra Commons.  We can probably help.  If you are seeking balance, Sierra Commons can provide a great work-life balance by giving you a place to focus.  If you want to learn a new skill, check out our class schedule.  Even if you are trying to have a healthier, fitter lifestyle, the Sierra Commons office is conveniently located right down the street from the South Yuba Athletic Club, Fit Culture, and Wild Mountain Yoga in Nevada City.

Whatever you do in 2015, get the support you deserve.  Make Sierra Commons a part of your life.  We’re here for our community.
